MTSC85 Such a little Monster...

OMGoodness!!!! I've been waiting for August to roll around for months... and of course there's a reason!!! You're probably wondering why I'm posting my Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge card along with  all of Mercy's Muses!!! Guess what - I'm MERCY's GUEST MUSE for the month of August!!! I'm so excited to be working alongside such a wonderful group of ladies who always provide so much inspiration every Tuesday.  Mercy - thank you so much for inviting me to play along this month. 

So on Saturday I made my way to my local Stamping store, Crafty Capers just to "take a look around" and had no intention of buying anything until I saw this cute set from Hero Arts called Monster Fun. I knew I couldn't leave the store without it and that I'd be needing a kid's birthday card soon.  I've watercolored the monsters with my Tombow Markers and then of course, I had to add the googly eyes. What little kid doesn't love googly eyes right?  I wanted to make the card a little more fun so I added the "balloons" and used Embroidery floss for the ribbon of the balloons.  It's hard to see but I've used the "Seeing Spots" Cuttlebug folder on the polka dotted layer to add a bit of dimension. Hope you like it!!!

Make sure you check out what Mercy and her Muses have for you today for inspiration:
